Rally in French mainland
decoration
For 2010, French motorsport federation FFSA decided to move the French round in WRC from classic Tour de Corse to mainland France. New rally is based on Strasbourg, an important administrative city for European Union and route winds around the surrounding country side rich in motorsport and motor industry heritage. Event is built upon foundations of French national championship event Rallye Alsace-Vosges and along the route is city of Mulhouse, site for a large Peugeot plant.

For number of reasons Alsace can be called a twin brother for Rallye Deutschland. Rally takes place in area around Strasbourg, which is just 200 kilometers south-east of Trier, headquarters for Deutschland. Both rallies have similar format, having different character for each of three days of competition - though not quite with the same polarity. There are forests high up in the hills, there are vineyard stages and there even is a stage in a military camp.
